The Legend. The Past Lives On…

No doubt that the January’s International Motor Bike Expo in Verona, Italy is the place to go to admire some brand new top of the line Customs competing in the Italian Championship of Custom bike Building. Lots of rolling pieces of art, many of them having a beginning of last century pedigree, featuring an original antique chassis and/or motor. You are looking at “The Legend”, a top winner creation built by Italian motorcycle shop . It features a 1917 Harley-Davidson model J engine, gearbox and carburetor in a custom hand-made chassis with some vintage parts sourced at other Italian expert and supplier Rebuffini.

Half of all 1917 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were sold to the Army for messenger and traffic duties during WWI, and I have no idea how the motor ended up on the shelves. Probably as a demilitarized unit dumped among other vehicles all over Europe after the war ended in 1918. Merit of this bike is not only the hand-crafting skills of owner but his personal dedication at rebuilding and making work the V-Twin, four-stroke 60.35 cubic inches Harley-Davidson 17J engine with single-speed transmission and electrics.

It was nothing else than a partial piece of scrap metal collecting dust. Many engine parts were missing and even pistons had to be manufactured, but engine internals are strictly authentic. As you can see, cylinders are customized in heat black wrinkle paint, valve train parts and authentic Schebler carburetor are nickel-plated to perfection. Although the objective is not to race it, today this motor could take you to a maximum speed of 85 mph, or about 137 km/h. Continue reading ‘The Legend. The Past Lives On…’

Flashback. 1973 Kawasaki H2. The King Of The Road Or The Widow Maker?

It has a reputation, both very good and very bad. Either “The King Of The Road” or “The Widow Maker” or both…It was the fastest thing on two wheels. Faster than any Suzuki. Faster than any Triumph. Faster than any BSA, and Honda, any anything.” The H2 engine was a 3-cylinder two-stroke with an engine displacement of 748 cc (45.6 cubic inches) which produced 74 horsepower at 6,800 rpm, a power-to-weight ratio of 1 hp to every 6 lb of weight. The H2 was designed for one thing and one thing only: speed. Noise, pollution, fuel consumption, even handling were all afterthoughts. Continue reading ‘Flashback. 1973 Kawasaki H2.

The Munro e-Bike. Retro Gorgeous And Painfully Slow.

The Munro Motor company is China-based and is in no way related, financially or otherwise, to the New Zealand Burt Munro’s family. The Munro 2.0 is the vision of Zack Wong who sees all Asians in very few years dumping their highly polluting mopeds and riding electric bicycles and motorcycles. Will the addition of the Munro name with great styling help sales? May be not enough knowing that on the pavement or salt maximum speed is limited to 28 mph. Tech sheet mentions 1 or 2 battery packs in the rear wheel hidden by panels on each side with a 30-mile range per battery pack. An USB port keeps your phone in full charge in case you need to call to say that you are going to arrive late. Should arrive in the US in April with a starting price of $1700.

Hard Muscle. To Celebrate 50 Years As A Leader Of The Swiss Harley Business With A Limited Edition V-Rod

50 years in business (1967-2017) in Switzerland for the same Harley company, a milestone needing to be celebrated. Father Felix Bächli (born in 1940) started in 1967 as a Harley and US bike seller, then became in 1978 an authorized official dealer. Son Rainer took over in 2002, and is now managing biggest dealership in the Switzerland, selling yearly about 15% of all Harley models in a country where the Milwaukee brand owns more than 26% of the heavyweight motorcycle market share.

A tribute in the form of a custom Harley V-Rod Muscle, although after 15 years of production the V-Rod is going to fade away in 2017. So, why Bächli did decide to pick up a V-Rod model to produce an Anniversary Limited Edition? Simply because it’s one of the preferred Harley models for neighboring Germans and Swiss riders. And not only because the V-rod has a well documented engine connection with Porsche Engineering, but also because the Harley power/cruiser seems conceived specifically for what German and Swiss riders – who are well known for their passion for advanced technology – like to ride. A motorcycle desirable because it’s of American origin, but also one quite revolutionary, not buried in a past era for silhouette and performance… So, an Adieu to the V-Rod 60-degree  V-Twin, but with one done with a BiG Bang, Bächli producing several 50 Years Anniversary limited edition models, variations coming from different paint jobs and of a few accessories.
